Lucky to be alive!

by Randy Allen

Why would anyone want to do this!  A woman tied a slab of meat to herself and outran a Komodo Dragon as part of a television sketch.

The prankster performed the challenge wearing a traditional Japanese kimono and was seen stretching and preparing to run as the Komodo Dragon came towards her.

As the animal suddenly darts towards the meat, she runs as the giant lizard sped after her.

She ran towards the camera crew as people stood by with wooden poles to help push the animal away from her.

Komodo dragons are the largest lizards in the world, over 9 feet long and weighing up to 100 kilograms.

They move at 15 miles an hour and can smell their prey from miles away.
